Welcome to MinibraeDogStayz.

Here we offer a superior 'non kennel' boarding service for your special four legged friends that deserve the best of care in the best of comfort.

We also offer a pick up and delivery service at appointed sites.  Fees are set on an each way basis.. click here for Collection and Drop off sites and fees


Minibrae is situated on a mostly unsealed road six kilometers off the Old Pacific Hwy, now called Wootton Way.   It varies from flat to hilly but is easily navigated.  The driveway has a thirty metre moderately steep section off the road. Google Maps is a great way of looking at the terrain.  For those who do not wish to drive their vehicles on this type of road or are towing large vans we offer a free pick up/drop off service at the start of Newmans Road and at other locations for a fee.




  • Per calendar day NOT per night

  • NOT suitable for fence jumpers or antisocial furbabies (to man or beast - furred or feathered)

  • Please read rates to be fully informed of all costs

We do things differently here - no kennels, no fear, no darkness, no noisy neighbours.  It really can be a terrifying experience for your four legged friends to be left in kennels with limited human interaction.    Here the dogs stay inside with the family, needless to say, your pet needs to be already house trained.  However for puppies and older companions that may be incontinent they can be crated over night (inside) to avoid accidents. 

  • Yes you can bring your own food (preferred) MUST BE USUAL DIET (boarding rate reduced by $5.00 per day)

  • Yes you can bring your own bedding, please have it freshly laundered before arrival

  • Yes we will give your pet medication as directed by you or your Vet (daily fee may apply, see Special Needs Boarding) - must be in original packaging

  • Long Stay discount

Please note dogs should be flea/tick free prior to arrival, remember they will be inside our home.  If dogs are dirty/smelly or have fleas they WILL be flea washed and charged accordingly.

A township within the local government area of Great Lakes Council in the Mid North Coast Region of New South Wales, Wootton is located 10 kilometres north of Bulahdelah, 26.4 kilometres south of Nabiac, 10.7 kilometres northwest of Topi Topi and 257 kilometres northeast of the state capital of Sydney. The small town is perched on a hilltop overlooking equestrian enterprises, cattle farms and state forest and national park grounds. The Pacific Highway passes through the town's eastern half, while the Coolongolook River snakes through the eastern side and intersects with Wootton Way, where the main township is situated. The town is often visited for a number of attractions within and around it, such as the Grandis Tallest Tree in New South Wales, O'Sullivans Gap Flora Reserve and the Wootton Historical Railway Walk in the Wang Wauk State Forest.

"We have been leaving our surrogate child (Rhosdesian Ridgeback) with Jenni during our annual four week holiday each year. Her love of animals and care is second to none and its great to be able to go away without a worry, knowing our pet will safe and well cared for"

"Happy puppies of all ages shapes and sizes!
Soo nice to go away without the underlying anxiety of leaving them at noisy concrete kennels (last time I did that my big dog came home with no voice)☹️
The closest to keeping them at home you will find"

Jenni is a dog lover. And dogs love Jenni. Simple. We could not have imagined a more perfect place for our beautiful Chip (kelpie). I can’t recommend highly enough. Very happy with everything!!
